    While running first time.. run steam from Terminal Window. so you can see what errors it throws.

    Dont run CS:S on opengl, run it on gdi.
    Learn about some Wine Registries

    and refer to AppDB

    as for me, I'm able to run CS:S out of the box.
    personally I have observed that ATI cards arnt good with Linux than Nvidia.

    Ive tried messing around with some registries today but it didn't seem to make a difference, better or for worse? but thanks for the help i cant say i haven't learned anything from this experience.

    im really starting to beleave my card just isnt made out to work with linux even though i installed the correct drivers.
    i also tried playing a linux based game (supertuxkart) just to see if it was to do with wine or not and came up with some bad results, i mean i was able to play the game but it definitely wasnt playing smoothly

    i think ill just get my self a nvidia card, any suggestions would be great, nothing over $200 though
